The paper presents the thermal resistance characteristics of walls with multilayer reflective insulation. The tests have been performed using a heat flow meter to determine the resistivity of the layers simulating partition walls in buildings. A modification of the structure has also been proposed and analysed with a view to increase the thermal resistance and, consequently, reduce the heat flux transferred through the walls. Consequently, walls produced with layers that ensure higher thermal insulation lead to better thermal performance properties of the whole buildings, which reduce heating/cooling costs throughout the year.
